Testimonials for Seattle Short Sales, a division of Ark Law Group, PLLC.

"She was responsive to email and proactive in pushing the lender for fast turnaround."

Seattle Short Sales - Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Erin was great to work with. She was responsive to email and proactive in pushing the lender for fast turnaround. When our case went to auction, she walked my buyer through the process and explained clearly the risks and outcomes. I really like the Smartsheet notification where we get instant updates on the case.

"I have sold many short sale properties over the last few years and have never had one go as smoothly as this one."

Seattle Short Sales - Friday, September 26, 2014

I have sold many short sale properties over the last few years and have never had one go as smoothly as this one. With as many liens as this property had, I was prepared for this to be a long, challenging process. Amanda was great. She always answered her phone and responded to emails promptly. She was happy to answer questions I had and seemed very knowledgeable. Thank you for a pleasant experience. I will refer sellers your way when they are in need.

Keep up the good work Lambros and the rest of the Seattle Short Sale Team!

Seattle Short Sales - Tuesday, November 19, 2013
I had the pleasure of working with Lambros Politis on a very difficult short sale. Not only was the actual loan extremely difficult to get approval on, but the client was volital, rude and mostly non coopoerative. Lambors ALWAYS held a polished, professional position with the client, was patient, understanding and got the client to cooperate with whatever need he had. Lambros is one of the finest professionals I have EVER had the pleasure to work with. He has outstanding communication skills and is extremely good at what he does. He keeps a level head during the most stressful, difficult times which in turn keeps all parties calm and cooperative. He is a truely unique person, experienced and intelligent attorney, and has great determination and patients. I strive to surround myself with people I can learn from in my life and Lambros is one of those people. I hope to work with him in the future. All of your employees I have had contact with are exemplary. Again, they all had to deal with a very volitial client and they shined during the most challenging times. Keep up the good work Lambros and the rest of the Seattle Short Sale Team! You are A1! Tammy Conrad John L Scott

"They are a great group of people with the correct set of expertise"

Seattle Short Sales - Thursday, November 14, 2013

Would I recommend Ark Law Group? DEFINITELY! When my wife and I came to the conclusion that we needed to attempt to short sale our home, we did not know where to start. We were referred to Ark Law Group and called to set up an appointment. When the day of our appointment came, we arrived at a quaint office and were greeted with a smile. The staff were all courteous and well dressed. When we sat down with our adviser, we had numerous questions about the process, the time line, how we would be effected and concerns about our needs and future. All of our questions were addressed and handled with compassion regarding the situation. Ark Law Group served as a guide throughout the entire process, negotiated settlements on our behalf and went the extra mile each and every step of the way. If you are in need of a short sale attorney and are willing and equipped to respond to their needs for documents and questions in a timely fashion, then Ark Law Group will aid you in every aspect that they can. If you put in the time to help them process your short sale, it will most likely culminate in a smooth and successful short sale that you can recover from much more easily than a foreclosure. Bottom line: Call them and go see them! They are a great group of people with the correct set of expertise to help process the short sale of your home.

Seattle Short Sales - Monday, August 19, 2013
Excellent service all around! Kimberly Stewart and Kellie Clifton have been my contacts through the past couple months, as they helped facilitate a short sale for me. Communication was always clear, timely, positive, and completely professional. They clarified all questions and proactively prepared me for all that was needed on my part, weeks in advance of any actions I needed to take. This was especially important, as I am residing in Central America, which made for some complications. All went like clockwork, and I'm deeply appreciative.

"I just want to say anyone who is thinking about going through a short sale on their own should go through you guys."

Seattle Short Sales - Thursday, August 01, 2013
I just want to say anyone who is thinking about going through a short sale on their own should go through you guys. I didn't realize how much work and time would go into this, especially working with BOA. Mary Beth was on top of it the entire time which took almost a year to complete. She was absolutely amazing to work with and kept her cool even when we got a bit frustrated with the process. I can't thank you her and Seattle Short Sale enough for finally getting this wrapped up so we can put it behind us and start to move forward.

"Thanks Seattle Short Sales and Ark Law Group for your hard work and a wonderful transaction."

Seattle Short Sales - Monday, July 29, 2013
Mary Beth Calpin was outstanding with this transaction. She was on the ball with everything, including keeping my client and I up to date on what was happening with the file. I still can't believe the bank approved the sale as-is and my client walked in to over $50,000 in equity. Thanks Seattle Short Sales and Ark Law Group for your hard work and a wonderful transaction.

"Mary Beth was always available by phone, which is a big help."

Seattle Short Sales - Monday, July 29, 2013
Mary Beth was always available by phone, which is a big help. The transaction took 11 months, which seems too long, even for B of A. The price got bumped twice, first was acceptable the second seemed avoidable, but buyer agreed. The BPO came in at $300,000 and the Buyer's Appraisal came in at $302,000--I think the BPO is too high but I have no recourse. I think the buyer would have gotten this house for $280,000 instead of $300,000 if the process had taken 6 months.

 - Gary D. (Selling Broker) Bellevue, WA 7/29/13

Seattle Short Sales - Monday, July 29, 2013
This was a super amazing transaction with Kellie Clifton. I've never seen anyone like her! I've been a transaction coordinator for 9 years and I have to say she is fantastic with getting things done. With the lender requesting some really absurd things at the final hour I didn't think it would be possible. Well Kellie made it possible. Love her! Thanks, Shanna N.

"Within 2 days she got them to come down $59K and get me $12K in closing"

Seattle Short Sales - Thursday, July 11, 2013
I waited over 6 months for an answer from the bank on a short sale and when they finally got back to me they asked for over market value on the house! I was ready to call it quits when I got a call from Kateryna saying she was going back in for me to counter their offer. Within 2 days she got them to come down $59K and get me $12K in closing! So, she made this happen and I am very thankful she got involved and wish she would have been there 6 months earlier!!

 - Stacy K (Seller) Seattle, WA 7/11/13

"Ark Law Group absolutely came through in a very timely manner...I ended up saving 18,500"

Seattle Short Sales - Monday, July 08, 2013
I was on the buyers end of this short sale process and I could not be more happy with the results. We originally had an agreed upon price to go to the bank with for the short sale that seemed fair with market conditions. The approval for this transaction happend very timely and efficiently. Once the bank approved the price, we went through the closing and appraisal process where the appraiser came back with a low appraisal. We ended up with a very short window to close this deal based on a few key factors and had to go back to the bank with a lower sales price. Ark Law Group absolutely came through in a very timely manner and I got my lower price approved with all the requirements met easily. I ended up saving $18,500 off of the original price and closed faster than expected. Thank you again.

"I really appreciate the care and attention we received."

Seattle Short Sales - Wednesday, June 19, 2013

For us this was a long process but Marcia was great. She answered all our questions and was sympathetic to how we were feeling throughout. She and our estate agent made this happen and without them we would be completely stuck. I have had need to contact the lawyers and the CPA and they have been responsive and insightful. I really appreciate the care and attention we received. Often times in situations like this people are made to feel guilty and terrible about a situation that was completely out of their control. S3 never made us feel as though short selling our house was in any way our fault. I felt they understood the situation so many people are in now. Thank you so much for acting on our behalf with the bank. I can't express enough how thankful we are that we had someone on our side to help us through what has been the most stressful year of our lives.

Seattle Short Sales - Monday, June 10, 2013
I had not worked with you group in closing a short sale before, but found them easy to coordinate escrow with, and knowledgeable.

Kateryna kept me informed as Nadias judgment negotiations on the last minute title clearing, and exactly when she wanted the final HUD revisions before closing.

Seattle Short Sales - Wednesday, June 05, 2013
Seattle Short Sales was great! they took a complicated situation, and had complete control over it the entire time. In the beginning, I was overwhelmed and had no idea what to do, and they took me through everything, one step at a time, being the mediator and main point of contact for every party that was involved. They handled any and every situation that came up, and made this an amazingly, and surprisingly smooth sale. Thank you for your help and constant communication. I hope you have more successful business transactions like this in the future. Best regards,

"I cannot adequately express how delighted we were with your service."

Seattle Short Sales - Tuesday, June 04, 2013
I cannot adequately express how delighted we were with your service. Short-selling a home can be a stressful experience under the best of conditions. I cannot imagine how much more stressful it would have been without a competent team of professionals who had our backs. Not only did you carry the weight of negotiations and sales, but you sold our home in a short amount of time at no cost to us. We are blown away. Thanks once again for your diligence and attention. We will be forever grateful.

"Both of my short sales with her closed even though there were complications on both of them. She is an asset to Seattle Short Sales, I hope they appreciate her"

Seattle Short Sales - Tuesday, June 04, 2013
I only had contact with Kateryna Shirolkar. As a buyers agent this was the 2nd time she was assigned to one of the short sales I had the buyer for. She is always professional, even when she is put in the middle of a disagreement between agents involved in the transaction. My buyers and I always felt that she truly cares about getting the transaction closed. Both of my short sales with her closed even though there were complications on both of them. She is an asset to Seattle Short Sales, I hope they appreciate her!

"I did not think that this could be done but you guys proved me wrong"

Seattle Short Sales - Thursday, May 30, 2013
I have to honestly say I didn't think that this could be done but you guys proved me 100% wrong. Every other short sale negotiation firm I talked to either told me no or probably not. Everyone was kept informed in a timely manner and I was almost always able to speak with either Nadia or Kateryna whenever I called.If I didn't get Nadia on the phone right away she always got back to me in a timely manner. I really appreciated being able to talk directly with someone who could answer my questions. Great job. I would definitely be pleased to work with Seattle Short Sales and delighted to work with Nadia again. Thanks so much.

"Using Seattle Short Sales gave my clients and I piece of mind..."

Seattle Short Sales - Wednesday, May 29, 2013
Using Seattle Short Sales gave my clients and I piece of mind knowing that they had expert negotiators and people to go to when if came down to understanding the banks approval terms. The liability was off of me and in the hands of their Attorneys and accountants that could best advise my clients and protect them. That allowed me to focus on the Real Estate side of marketing and getting the home SOLD. What a perfect match!

"Kateryna has been wonderful to work with"

Seattle Short Sales - Saturday, May 25, 2013
Kateryna has been wonderful to work with! We've been obtaining final HUD approval days prior to closing on our last several closings rather than coming down to the day of closing. Less stressful for all parties involved! KUDOS :)

"I had always felt frustrated with short sale processes in general."

Seattle Short Sales - Wednesday, May 22, 2013
I had always felt frustrated with short sale processes in general. Mary Beth seemed to have already taken the next necessary step(s) to escalade, call the negotiators, manager, or whatever she needed to do to stay on top of our file at BofA. I appreciated that.

"Seattle Short Sales was without doubt the best decision I made..."

Seattle Short Sales - Wednesday, May 22, 2013
Seattle Short Sales was without doubt the best decision I made with regards to my Condominium. The staff are top shelf professionals and readily available to answer my questions. We listed the property one week and the Real Estate agent Steve Stockman of ReMax had the condo sold within 4 weeks! Unbelievable to me as I was expecting a protracted migraine of 6 months or longer. In short - Seattle Short Sales is Great!

"Her positive attitude and warmth carried my clients and me to the finish line."

Seattle Short Sales - Friday, May 17, 2013
My experience with Seattle Short Sales was excellent. When the transaction got tough, Kateryna with her leadership never gave up on it. She, along with support of Nadia, continued to submit our amendments to extend closing and always received responses from the two lenders. Kateryna always returned phone calls and responded to emails since this was my first short sale and only my 6th month back in the industry since leaving it in the 80's. Her positive attitude and warmth carried my clients and me to the finish line. I hope to work with them again.

"This was a very smooth transaction once we had the bank approval"

Seattle Short Sales - Friday, May 17, 2013

Seattle Short Sales - Thursday, May 16, 2013
Marcia Lehmons has been a great help to me with the short-sale of my house in Lynnwood. I have had questions, and my real estate agent has not been available for me.
